“I don’t want the world to see me, Cause I don’t think that they’d understand”. 

We hide what we don’t want the world to see and try to only show what we want people to see. Even though we try to hide the less nice parts of ourselves, there is always that one person that can see through it all and they become the person that you show yourself to. They understand you, and they become the piece that holds you together. Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls describes the feeling of having that one special person around you that you can share your world of emotions with. The lyrics of this song are just absolutely stunning. The instrumental portion of the song was well done and made the song an even more beautiful piece of music.
